Okay, so it's not so little - I made the PINK GEM DESIGNS team ... WOOHOO!! See, I told you it wasn't so little lol. Thanks so much Janet for giving me the opportunity to work with these adorable stamps!!!
I've only got one card today but might have another one later if I can get all my ironing done yuk!! This one is for Papertake Weekly challenge which has another of DawnyP's fab sketches. I'm also entering this in Cupcake Craft challenge which is to use something printed. The papers are a download from Designer Digitals (LOVE this set).
Whilst having a tidy out yesterday I found this sweet stamp that I have not used in ages - she reminds me so much of my daughter Shelley when she was that age - always collecting shells and fascinated by the baby crabs. Oh what wonderful memories they are.
As soon as I saw this set from Designer Digitals I knew it would be perfect for the stamp, I love the aged look it has and the beautiful subtle colours that invoke memories of years gone by. I resized all the papers in Photoshop to 15cm x 15cm so I wouldn't lose the distressed edges of the pages. I added some stitching to carry the aged look through the card and went for the script sentiment on the inside as it just seemed to work perfectly with the theme I had in mind. I don't know the maker of the sentiment stamp on the inside of the card, sorry. I got it off Ebay a couple of years ago.
Stamps Happen Collecting Sea Shells coloured with Distress Inks and H2O's. Sentiment stamp on the front of the card is by Stampin Up!
Papers are a download from Designer Digitals (Edited to add name of set - Asian Spring)
Corners are a Quickutz die
The wired silk ribbon trim is from Dainty Supplies
Flowers are all Prima - thanks Karen xx
